An outer space forest

Inspiration can come from anything!
This afternoon I found a miniature landscape in my garden. Close up it was a bunch of clear, almost glassy stems with a more than yellow bulb at the top. The bulbs of the longest stems were coloured to bronze. It seems like a beautiful little forest on one of the planets far away from here ...

Please click on the pictures for the full effect:

From close-up stepping back into the earthy dirt, I discovered it was just a turd ...
Made by one of my roommates. As seen by the fungoid state it must have been done light-years ago.


  1. Before we went of for groceries it looks like the bronze tops were exploded en had blown out a kind of black powder over the little forest. Like it was burned down. I would be a perfect follow up picture in this story.
    When we came back I couldn't make a picture anymore because it was raining like hell. I think the whole turd is floaten away now ;-)
